Changing the background

Say goodbye to the starting view with the Foliobook logo!

In this demo you can see how the customisation of your personal brand can be created very quickly.

To improve the ‘presentation experience’ Foliobook has a ‘cover’ customiser that allows you to create your own branding when the app starts up. You can load an image with a logo as the cover background or if you haven’t got one right away you can choose from a set of presupplied background textures.

Foliobook has been designed to be expandable and allow different designs, types of ‘page’ and more capabilities that may be announced in future.

Adding a text logo or a title

Here’s how to overlay a text title on a background image or video. Its also possible to overlay a graphic logo with transparency, but thats a subject for another video coming in the near future.

Once images are loaded onto your iPad and visible in your photos app you can import them into Foliobook, here’s how.

Sorting images in the lightbox

Getting images in the right order, deleting and emailing them are covered in this introduction to the lightbox which is accessible from the gallery toolbar

Viewing and navigating in a gallery

How to view the pictures, navigate and customise the appearance and transitions of a gallery.

The demo only shows landscape images, but portrait images can be shown as well and rotating the portfolio will cause the image to fill the screen in the correct aspect ratio.

Foliobook also allows you to email an image, or a set of images, complete with copyright information and a predefined email subject line.

This is the basic core of what Foliobook is, a simple, clean way to rapidly sort and present your work, with your branding leading the way.
